Garmin has not had a very nice couple of days due to its Nuvi recall over overheating issues, but that has not stopped them announcing the Edge 800 GPS for cyclists. The device comes with a 2.6-inch touchscreen display, which not only uses BaseCamp but BirdsEye satellite imagery as well.
Garmin knows that keeping a GPS signal is very important, so has incorporated HotFix technology into the design. The release date will be some time in October and will cost from $449 – $649, the price difference is due to a choice of different bundles.
The new Garmin Edge 800 comes with a host of cool support features such as: cadence sensors, heart rate monitors and a range of other ANT+ devices. Donald Melanson from Engadget tells us that early reviews are good for the new GPS device, but the true test comes once it comes to market.
Garmin looks as though they will back the Touchscreen Edge 800 heavily, you will know just what I mean once you read their preview of the device. Visit the Garmin website now for extensive details.
